   The Walt Disney Studios is adding The Jungle Book to its prestigious Diamond Edition Collection. Released from the Disney vault for the first time in almost seven years, the 1967 motion picture will be available on Blu-ray in the US on February 11th. The collection, complete with memorable tunes, beloved characters, and bonus behind-the-scenes features, is now available for pre-order from Amazon.

   Based on a Rudyard Kipling novel, this song-filled celebration of friendship and adventure was Disney’s 19th animated masterpiece, and this was the final animated feature with Walt Disney’s personal touch. Viewers can experience its lush and colorful world, and jazzy, toe-tapping songs (including I Wan’na Be Like You and the Oscar-nominated classic The Bare Necessities) with the ultimate in high definition and sound clarity.

   The Jungle Book follows Mowgli on a journey with unforgettable characters, including Bagheera, the wise panther, the jazzy King Louie, the hypnotic snake Kaa, and the lovable, happy-go-lucky bear Baloo. Phil Harris, Louie Prima, J. Pat O’Malley, George Sanders, Sterling Holloway, Clint Howard, and Sebastian Cabot were among the talented voices used.


  • Alternate Ending – Mowgli and The Hunter
  • Disney Intermission – Bear-E-Oke hosted by Baloo
  • Music, Memories & Mowgli: A Conversation with Richard M. Sherman, Diane Disney Miller and Floyd Norman

   The United Kingdom released the Diamond Edition of The Jungle Book on August 5th, 2013.
